The Religious Right Freaks Out Over West Point’s First Same-Sex Marriage
By: Hrafnkell HaraldssonDecember 4th, 2012
As Towledroad observed on December 1, ” It is a happy weekend for Brenda Sue Fulton and Penelope Dara Gnesin. Not only are they tying the knot, but they’re making history as the first same-sex couple to do so in military academy West Point’s chapel.”
To say aberrochistians are having a difficult time with this is to understate the case. ChristianNews.net had to put the word wedding in quotation marks as though it were a dog and a cat tying the knot (I think I will henceforth put the word Christian in quotation marks, as in “Christian” News).
I will certainly put this one in quotation marks: Peter LaBarbera at ”Americans for Truth” About Homosexuality called Fulton and Gnesin’s marriage the ”latest manifestation of America’s descent into decadence and godlessness” and called it evidence we are dangling off the “moral cliff.” AFTAH only care about lies, not truth.
And then there that is crusty old religious bigot Pat Robertson, who asked, “what have they done to our cherished institution?”"

1. God Bless them.
"Her fiance, Gnesin, is a 52-year-old breast cancer survivor with multiple sclerosis, which is one of the reasons the women decided they could not wait any longer for their home state of New Jersey to legalize marriage equality."
